Today marks the longest streak of below freezing weather since 1997. It was only a week ago that I was complaining that it’s been an incredibly mild winter which felt like just a prolonged Fall. Daffodils were blooming already. Them WHAM the weather blew in from the north and we haven’t seen any temp above freezing for a week, day or night. It’s supposed to continue for at least another week.
Today I didn’t feel at all like running. The only place I could imagine safely running without slipping in the snow would have been at the beach. And running on the beach with a super freezing wind blowing on your face didn’t sound at all fun. I convinced DB to come for a walk instead. I expected we’d walk for an hour, just around town. We ended up walking for 2 hours and about 10km, all around Haarlem Noord. Here are photos I took. The canal skating was at 3 different places around town.
There was a group of boys who had taken the wheels off of their skateboards and just stood on them and glided down this little hill. The poor boys snowboard I guess.
